Sentiments of the season
Peace, love and joy are not exclusive to Christianity (it’s only misanthropes, Satanists and arms dealers and who are opposed to them) and surely are not limited to Christmas.
But, if you’re Christian, Christmas is an excellent time to focus on what Jesus stood for and to make plans to practice those values in the coming year.
And, if you’re not Christian, it’s also a good time to think about what you can do to promote peace and love and joy in the coming year.
 And f you like being argumentative, you can compile a list of major non-Christian pacifists and humanitarians to remind your sparring partners that Christian values are at home in pretty much every community in the world.
